  • I used to saute onions and mushrooms, then cut up the hot dogs and add it to the saute and mix it into mac and cheese and then add 1/2 a can of sweet peas! Yumm, those were the days!

  • I love bread crumbs....bake some on top mmmmmmm so bad for you though.

    oh yeah almost forgot ...Basil and chopped tomatoes. Try it after you separate a single serving to see if you like it. Sprinkle some dried basil and some tomato...its so good. If you like it slice some fresh basil next time.

  • I do like tuna, but only if it's packed in oil, in the packet. My BIL also adds lemon pepper or cajun seasoning.
    Hamburger, along with a little onion powder and chili powder tastes a lot like cheeseburger macaroni.
    Diced tomatoes and green chilies and corn are popular with my SIL's mom and her household.
    And my son likes to add diced up leftover steak or roast.
